I love the beauty of this restaurant and am very glad that they reopened. The new menu was enticing and am glad to see that Duck Confit is back.

Service needs to improve. I waited 20 minutes for my cocktail and it came after my salad was served. Onion soup arrived and then the main course came very soon afterward. Main course was cold by the time the soup was finished. Our waiter was engaging and helpful.

Noise level makes conversation really difficult.

My food was great and I hope that next time I return that service and sequencing are improved.

Lovely Birthday dinner for my husband. I had made a note via open table how we were Celebrating his birthday after attending the Panthers game. They already had set a special table and presented a beautiful dessert with candle after the delicious meal - happy Birthday written in chocolate and everything. La Belle Hellene is back - thank you, 5 Church Group!

Omelette overcooked One piece of cold toast with no butter or marmalade. Avoid if you re planning Sunday brunch when the Panthers are playing. Parking cost $30.

Amazing ambiance and the food tasted great! Our server Holly was super sweet, knowledgeable and friendly. Enjoyed watching Chef Jamie manage the kitchen, and there is a team spirit here that you don't see at many places. Everyone was helping each other, bravo!

My cousin and I visited La Belle Helene from Atlanta while we were in town to see a show for a girls trip. It was INCREDIBLE. One of the best ambiances i've seen (and Atlanta has some great ones) with consistently good food across the board. We went for dinner Saturday night and split the shrimp cocktail (so fresh and comes on almost a seafood tower), we each got the tomato bisque (it's a full bowl size) that comes with a tiny (phenomenal) grilled cheese. It was so good we went back for brunch Sunday and sat on their patio. I had the fromage omelette (absolutely killer if you're a cheese lover like me), and my cousin had the rotisserie salad that she said was amazing. I got a bloody mary and if you're a bloody mary lover you know how easy it is to mess up. It was probably the best one I've had. Oh and Will the manager is a gem. 10/10 recommend.

We had an excellent meal where my wife had the filet and I the hanger steak. Both very good with the filet beating out with just a little more tenderness.
Waitress Chloe did a great job of helping us celebrate our anniversary.

Ambiance is amazing. So glad to see La Belle Helene open again. Went for brunch. Overall we enjoyed the experience. My wife loved her mushroom bacon crepe. Unfortunately, my Croque Monsieur was a bit under done and cold... They probably need to rework that item - thinner bread, cooked longer.

Sadly, not what we expected. Our food was served cold and it was difficult to even get a drink. It took three different people. Ambiance was fantastic, but service did not meet our standard.

Can't beat the ambience and the location in center of uptown. Lovely surroundings.

Food was great though trout sauce a bit over salty and mussel sauce too much dijon! Otherwise wonderful meal, wine, herbal tea, little extra treats brought to the table.

Service was impeccable, Brent was friendly and personable and also attentive and professional.

Definitely will return and bring friends!

Took us over 8 minutes to be greeted by a server but once we did, he was kind and quick. Cheese board was delicious and the espresso martini was excellent!!! Would absolutely go back, but more so for the ambiance and drinks over food.

Appetizer, soup and salad were really good. Main courses were a disappointment. Service was so so. Very loud. I don't mind spending good money for a good experience, but this didn't live up to my expectations. Just being honest. I will try it again, but next time I will sit at the bar and stick to appetizers and such.

Despite local mandates, hostess, wait staff and others were not wearing masks inside or outside. Tables inside were so close together that I could have eaten off the plate of the gentleman at the table next to us. I asked to be moved to a table outside and thankfully this was possible. If not we would have left despite our reservation.

It took 20 mins before a waitress came to take our drink and food order. French toast was thin, soggy and not edible. Very disappointing brunch experience.
